8. Impromptu Mandates
Whereas the budget is presented in an unclear fashion
BIRT it be presented in the future in a detailed balance sheet
Whereas the voting structure is unreliable and possibley suspect,
BIRT that a ballot system be implemented for the next AGM.
Whereas the structure does not reflect the various years and
disciplines of the student population,
BIRT the current ESS look into a new system for better class
Debate on Motion:
the ESS currently uses class representatives to reflect the years and disciplines,
thus this motion is redundant.
Motion to close meeting put up by Karl. Seconded and passed at 1:45pm.
